Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with Billie Moan - Circle of Spring

Image may contain: text

Hi Crafters!

Some exciting news for you today! It's Blog Hop time!! Today we are CASE-ing (Copy & Selectively Edit) the wonderfully talented Billie Moan, who is also joining us on this hop!

I hope you find great inspiration from all the projects in this hop. You may be starting the hop here at my blog (Jessie Holton) or you may have come from the previous person on the list. Be sure to click on the next person in the list to continue your blog hop adventure casing Billie's work.

Here's Billie's card which I have chosen to case.


I was originally going to use the beautiful Butterfly Basics (Staying) & Gorgeous Grunge (retiring) stamp sets from Stampin' Up!, like what Billie did but then I picked up the Lovely Lace embossing folder, which is also retiring soon & I just love it, so I thought I would use that instead with the Butterfly Thinlits.


I've also used some Blushing Bride satin ribbon, Kraft cardstock & Lace Doilies with the Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper - all of which are retiring soon! If you love any of these & you haven't yet got them, hurry!! Everything is selling out so fast, it's ridiculous!!

The Doilies are white on one side & vanilla on the other. I have used the vanilla side. 


I've added some Basic Pearls to the front & stamped the inside of the card with the Circle of Spring stamp set in Blushing Bride on Very Vanilla cardstock, to match the Doilies on the front.


I hope you have enjoyed my projects today! I sure have had fun making them & I think my girlfriends will enjoy them when they come for lunch today!

Please have a look at the list below & hop around the rest of the Crazy Crafters to see all the beautiful projects made, casing the lovely Billie Moan xx



IT'S SALE TIME!! 
As we all grieve the upcoming loss of the gorgeous current catalogs (Annual & Occasions), we can celebrate in the amazing sales as all the beautiful products get reduced to clear! But act fast if there is anything you still want, cos they are flying out the door!!

OSAT Flower Power Blog Hop - So In Love

Image may contain: text and outdoor

Hi Crafters!

I've been so naughty! I was asked to join in with the OSAT Blog Hop late last year & I am really so honored to have been asked! But I've missed the last two months after being too pregnant to even reach my desk in Feb & just too tired last month, but I bet all you mums & dads out there know exactly how I feel lol! I'm excited to finally be getting back on my feet (not getting a chance to sit down!) with my now 2 year old & 2 month old boys! :P

It's autumn here in Australia & this month's theme is Flower Power. This what I've created with inspiration from the colours of the season & using the So In Love Bundle. I hope you like it! xx


I've used Kraft cardstock for the card, layered with Fabulous Foil Acetate, Vellum & a sheet of the Serene Scenery Designer Series Paper in Old Olive. I've die cut this on the Big Shot with the So Detailed Thinlits.


I've also wrapped a length of Vanilla Satin Ribbon around the card & threaded a Falling in Love Embellishment (vanilla flower) on it. Lastly, I've Gold heat embossed the sentiment from the So in Love stamp set on Very Vanilla cardstock, fussy cut it & attached it with Dimensionals.


I've stamped the inside to match in Old Olive. I've stamped off the ink for the foliage down the side.


I've also decorated a little Kraft Gift Bag to match with the same stamped off foliage all over, layers of Fabulous Foil Acetate, Vellum, Vanilla Satin Ribbon & a Falling in Love Embellishment which I've attached to a Gold Binder Clip.

Rick Adkins is next up in the Blog Hop for you to continue on with the Flower Power Fun! You can click the Next Button to get to his post or use the list underneath if you get lost. Enjoy your travels & enjoy the show! xx

OnStage 2017 Sydney!

Hi Crafters!

Oh my gosh it was fun at OnStage this year! You should see the new catalog & all of the BEAUTIFUL products! It's amazing!! This year I'll be getting Stampin' Up! to send the catalogs out directly for me. Sign up for your copy here.


I got up at 3am & got myself & Ryan (now 8 weeks old) ready to fly up to Sydney from Avalon. Our flight was at 6am & the little man went straight to sleep without a peep! He really is a good baby. He slept all the way until I was just about to get off the plane. Then we caught the train to Luna Park & we got to the Big Top Function Room just in time to start the day!

All us Demo's got given three stamp sets each, plus I got another one, some ribbon & ink at the end of the day & my upline gave me a stamp set too! Wowzers! It was a tight fit to get it all in the nappy bag & bring it home at the end of the day! As I had to take the nappy bag as carry on, I wasn't able to participate in swaps this time, but gee there were some amazing cards floating around!


Deb, me, Kate & Fiona, with Ryan in front.


All the Demo's at OnStage! Of course, there are thousands more at all the other cities across the globe! And the next one in November is in Melbourne! Hooray!!


Afterwards, a group of us went out for dinner along the Rocks. There were about 40 of us in the main group at OnStage & 11 of us here at dinner (plus Ryan who was just behind me, out of shot).


From there we caught the train back to the airport & caught a 10pm flight home & we were all tucked up in bed by 1am. It was a long day, but totally worth it & Ryan is such a little gem so he made it easy! xx

Kylie's International Blog Highlight - Special Reason


Hi Crafters!

Thanks for coming to the International Blog Highlight today, hosted by the lovely Kylie Bertucci. You are currently visiting Jessie Holton in Australia.The top ten winners of this Blog Hop will get to be part of a special international blog hop so please vote for my project, as I would love to be able to participate in it! We have a wedding theme for this highlight. 

Do you ever buy a stamp set cos you love what you've seen someone else do with it? I fell in love with the little gift bag they made up for the photo for the Special Reason/Stylish Stems Bundle in the Occasions catalog & I've used it a few times since I got it but I just wasn't getting that feeling with it. So I decided to case the catalog & BAM! I'm in love again! Casing is a great way to get out of a ditch in your mojo!


I've used Pear Pizazz, Calypso Coral & So Saffron to create this card, stamping off the inks & creating an ombre look on the flowers by inking up with So Saffron & then applying Calypso Coral to the outsides with a sponge. These three colours are really effective on the Kraft cardstock base. Can you believe this is the first time I've used the Hexagon embossing folder? Oh my! I love it! I've also added some of the white ribbon from the Sending Love Combo & some Basic Pearls.


I've stamped the inside to match & added a few more pearls, as well.

You are currently visiting Jessie Holton in Australia, I hope you've enjoyed my project! The top ten winners of this Blog Hop will get to be part of a special international blog hop so please vote for my project, as I would love to be able to participate in it! You can also view the gallery & see everyone else's projects xx
